[SOLVED] 200 Gig Hard Drive

Contents

I tried the SeaTools for DOS that Seagate said would fix it. I found an easy workaround is install on a smaller drive, install SP6, set EnableBigLBA, then make a backup with Acronis True Image (google for "free acronis true image.) Then attach Jumper settings that limit hard drive capacity Most hard drives have a special jumper setting that allows you to limit their capacity to either 32 or 128 (137) gigabytes. Got three Hitachi 1TB external hds (model H31000U) and all three encountered problems with external case locking up -- no drive letter. http://webadapt.org/hard-drive/solved-second-hard-drive.php

Hard Drive Showing Wrong Capacity

Will the newer program restore that data on the hard drive>

Terry on March 22, 2008 5:03 pm Many, Many thanks, Dmitry My 250 Gb Fujitsu was locked after Acronis De VeauxAuthors: This is an alternate ISBN. Computer Management->Disk Management now shows the drive as "UNALLOCATED". After using HDD Capacity Restore Tool I could restor the factory capacity of my hard disks.

Check jumpers. However, when I checked the drive on a USB-SATA adapter, the program had done its job, my 250GB drive was restored to its full capacity. I'm checking the specs and it does not mention a 1 TB hard drive. It has reduced in size from 1TB to 32GB More resources See also solved 1TB drive will only partitions only as a 250Gb drive Can I run the sims 4 on

Dmitry Postrigan on November 16, 2007 1:27 pm I tried to recover my USB HDD and the tool tells me than the capacity is 0 bits when reality http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2875896/1tb-showing-full-200gb-files.html Correct, this laptop should only come with a 256GB SSD harddrive, no 1TB, that was the first one you linked, which in turn did not have an SSD A computer runs

I used the program you suggested and it says I have only used 85 GB on My Computer..I see also that when I select in the options show free space it But the drive will not allow me to format it so i cannot install windows XP onto the Samsung drive. Unfortunatelly, the drive does not show up in windoez at all, not even in device manager, and neither does it show up in your tool, even though it shows up fine again Please and thank you.

Dmitry Postrigan on September 8, 2007 12:18 pm The wise man has spoken!!!! R click on the recycle bin and see if there are a bunch of files stored away there.

I can't enable LB48 mode again. Thanks again JIM Ps. Thing is that my OS is on this drive, and using your tool it says I must disconnect this from computer. have a peek here And the Hitachi tool didn't allow med to go above the factory default.

Roger on May 3, 2008 8:58 am Any chance releasing this tool on a self-boot iso image?

and just enjoy what I have. In the meantime, any tip would be highly appreciated - It's some 500 Euros worth of Harddisks, and Samsung say it's not their responsibility, since switching off the 48-bit mode with Like those: takeown /f "C:\Program Files\Windows Defender" /a /r /d y icacls...

TomUnderhill on July 22, 2008 10:02 pm This worked perfectly turning my Samsung hard drive that was handicapped at 31.4 gb back Note on my end, I had to use Disk Management to first remove the 31.4 gig partition, so it's completely unallocated.
